How We Help
Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida's Mission is to provide programs and services for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. In 2014 Goodwill SWFL served more than 40,000 people. That's roughly one in every 30 SW Florida residents.
What is a "barrier to employment?"
A barrier to employment is any disadvantage which prevents individuals from gaining or maintaining employment. These barriers can include (but are not limited to) a lack of education, age, physical or mental disabilities, lack of computer access, language barriers, and economic constraints.
